Electronic records are kept in all the places where you receive healthcare. Often, NHS care services can usually only share information from those records by letter, email, fax or phone. At times, this can slow down your treatment and mean information is hard to access.
This electronic record service uses a secure computer system that allows the sharing of full electronic records across different NHS care services.
You can choose to share or not to share your full electronic record with other NHS care services where you are treated and whether we can view records held by those other services.
